IB Visual Art is an class for students who want to take their art skills to the next level. Students in the IB Visual Art class spend their time in two main ways. First they create Research Workbooks, which are collections of sketches, found images, research about cultures and artists, and media experiments. The ideas gathered in these books serve as food for their studio work, which has ranged from sculpture to painting and from figurative art to conceptual and abstract work. Students are exposed to scholarship opportunities, contests and careers in the visual arts and design sector in this class.
